Grayscale ultrasound characteristics of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease severity – an adult and pediatric cohort study

Marcin Strzelczyk/ Michał Podgórski/ Susan Afshari/ Marcin Tkaczyk/ Monika Pawlak-Bratkowska/ Piotr Grzelak

Introduction: The most common hereditary kidney condition is autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. It is the cause of 5–10% of end-stage renal disease. Its symptoms are generally late-onset, typically leading to development of hypertension and chronic kidney disease. Ultrasonography is the imaging modality of choice in its diagnosis and management. The aim of this study is to determine the diagnostic value of grayscale ultrasound imaging in evaluating disease severity. Materials and meth(..)

Antenatal corticosteroid treatment for the prevention of peri-intraventricular haemorrhage in preterm newborns: a retrospective cohort study using transfontanelle ultrasonography

Bianca A. Almeida/ Livia T. Rios/ Edward Araujo Júnior/ Luciano M. Nardozza/ Antonio F. Moron/ Marília G. Martins

Objective: The objective of this study was to assess the correlation between antenatal corticosteroids and peri-intraventricular haemorrhage (PIVH) using transfontanelle ultrasonography, as well as to evaluate the risk factors for its incidence. Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study using medical records of preterm newborns. The protocol for maternal corticoid administration for foetal lung maturation included dexamethasone 4 mg (intramuscular) 8/8 hours per 48 hours, with one cycle(..)

Difficulties in differentiating the nature of ascites based on ultrasound imaging

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk/ Elżbieta Bernatowicz

Transabdominal ultrasound not always allows to determine the nature of ascites based solely on its characteristics. Aim: The aim of the study was to present difficulties in determining the nature of ascites using transabdominal ultrasonography solely based on extra-organ lesions as well as, after the inclusion of the overall abdominal assessment and the clinical picture. Materials and methods: A total of 18 patients with non-neoplastic ascites and 62 patients with neoplastic ascites whose final (..)

Repeatability and reproducibility of measurements of the suburethral tape location obtained in pelvic floor ultrasound performed with a transvaginal probe

Maria Magdalena Dresler/ Jacek Kociszewski/ Edyta Wlaźlak/ Piotr Pędraszewski/ Agnieszka Trzeciak/ Grzegorz Surkont

Introduction: Implants used to treat patients with urogynecological conditions are well visible in US examination. The position of the suburethral tape (sling) is determined in relation to the urethra or the pubic symphysis. Aim of the study: The study was aimed at assessing the accuracy of measurements determining suburethral tape location obtained in pelvic US examination performed with a transvaginal probe. Material and methods: The analysis covered the results of sonographic measurements obt(..)

Sonographic detection of inferior subluxation in post-stroke hemiplegic shoulders

Bukunmi M. Idowu/ Oluwagbemiga O. Ayoola/ Victor A. Adetiloye/ Morenikeji A. Komolafe/ Babalola I. Afolabi

Aim of the study: To evaluate the usefulness of ultrasonographic acromion-greater tuberosity distance measurement and Shoulder ratio in detecting post-stroke inferior shoulder subluxation. Material and methods: Forty-five hemiplegic stroke patients and 45 controls underwent shoulder sonography to measure their acromion-greater tuberosity distance. Side-to-side acromion-greater tuberosity distance differences and Shoulder ratios were derived from the acromion-greater tuberosity distance values. T(..)

Detailed EFSUM recommendations on the scope of ultrasound assessment in patients with portal hypertension considering the diagnostic reference level

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk

An important paper describing the Standards of the Polish Ultrasound Society regarding the assessment of portal and hepatic vasculature was published in the Journal of Ultrasonography. Due to the multiplicity of morphological and hemodynamic data required, the time needed to obtain these data and the legal responsibility of doctors for the results, there seems to be a need to determine a clear range of the assessed parameters depending on the reference level of a given healthcare facility. There(..)

Can ultrasound be helpful in selecting optimal management methods for pregnancies complicated by placental non-trophpblastic tumors?

Nabil Abdalla/ Robert Piórkowski/ Paweł Stanirowski/ Monika Pazura/ Krzysztof Cendrowski/ Włodzimierz Sawicki

Placental chorioangioma is the most common subtype of non-trophoblastic placental tumors. Other subtypes are very rare and usually associated with an uneventful course of pregnancy. Most chorioangiomas are small and of no clinical significance. Giant chorioangiomas may be associated with serious fetal and maternal complications. So far, no established ultrasound guidelines are available for the management of placental non-trophoblastic tumors. This may be attributed to the rarity of the disease (..)

Wrist ultrasound examination – scanning technique and ultrasound anatomy. Part 2: Ventral wrist

Cyprian Olchowy/ Daniel Soliński/ Mateusz Łasecki/ Paweł Dąbrowski/ Szymon Urban/ Urszula Zaleska-Dorobisz

Ultrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system is an important element of the diagnostic and therapeutic protocol. Clinical decisions, including those regarding surgical procedures, are often based solely on ultrasound imaging. However, detailed knowledge on the anatomy and a correct scanning technique are crucial for an accurate diagnosis. Modern ultrasonographic equipment allows obtaining detailed anatomical images of muscle tendons, ligaments, nerves and vessels of the carpal area. Ventral (..)

A reminder of peristalsis as a useful tool in the prenatal differential diagnosis of abdominal cystic masses

Eugenio O. Gerscovich/ Simran Sekhon/ Thomas W. Loehfelm/ Sandra L. Wootton-Gorges/ Adam Greenspan

With routine antenatal ultrasound and recent advances in ultrasound technology, fetal intraabdominal cystic masses are recognized more often and are better characterized than in the past. They may be classified as solid and cystic, and may originate from multiple structures. When considering the extensive differential diagnosis of cystic masses, the observation of peristalsis narrows the possibilities to the gastrointestinal tract. To find this feature on ultrasound, the examiner must expressly (..)

Body stalk anomaly: antenatal sonographic diagnosis of this rare entity with review of literature

Amandeep Singh/ Jasmeet Singh/ Kamlesh Gupta

Body stalk anomaly is a rare and severe malformation syndrome in which the exact pathophysiology and trigger factors are still unknown. Possible causes of body stalk anomaly include early amnion rupture with direct mechanical pressure and amniotic bands, vascular disruption of the early embryo, or an abnormality in the germinal disk. We present a case of body stalk anomaly diagnosed during antenatal sonographic evaluation at the first visit with the review of literature regarding this phenomenon(..)

Is a linear probe helpful in diagnosing diseases of pulmonary interstitial spaces?

Natalia Buda/ Wojciech Kosiak

In a lung ultrasound examination, interstitial lung lesions are visible as numerous B-line artifacts, and are best recorded with the use of a convex probe. Interstitial lung lesions may result from many conditions, including cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, or interstitial lung disease. Hence difficulties in the differential diagnostics of the above clinical conditions. This article presents cases of patients suffering from interstitial lung lesions discovered in t(..)
